The Altar is a piece of furniture acting as a table which is most often located close to the middle of the lodge. Elsewhere at the pedestal in the east may serve the same purpose. It is the place where serious functions of freemasonry take place and is the focal point for the members. In most areas, this is where the bible, the square and compass may be placed that remind us how to conduct ourselves in life and with great respect for others.
